BIM-SPEED is a research project funded by Horizon 2020. It is being co-ordinated by the Technical University of Berlin. FIEC is a partner. The purpose of the project is to stimulate the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the energy renovation of residential buildings.

Why FIEC is dealing with this topic

FIEC believes that BIM - already an important tool in the construction of new buildings and infrastructure - could have a significant impact on the speed and effectiveness of energy renovation. However, as it is more difficult to introduce BIM into works on the existing building stock, because of the need to set up the model when a building already exists, then new tools need to be developed. Given our commitment to accelerating the speed of energy renovation in the EU, this project will show how BIM can be introduced into this important task, offering SMEs in particular, ways to start using it.
